Event: National Cyber Security Centre, Netherlands (NCSC.NL) – Social Media & Cloud Computing are creating Threats to Privacy, Security and Liberty – A Global Perspective
Social Media has quickly woven itself into the very fabric of everyday life. This boom in sharing, even the most banal of details, has had a resounding impact on how our children, employees and colleagues communicate. Using case studies from the US and around the world, we’ll examine how people have lost jobs, college admissions, college degrees, fortunes and freedom through (un)social media. We’ll also investigate the rampant OVERCOLLECTION of customer and subscriber data by major corporations and governments.
We’ll also discuss some strategies and steps we can take to protect civil liberties and privacy in the age of Social Media.
